What is left to say when bodies fall from the sky? Drawing upon philosopher Jean-Luc Nancy’s writing on religion, faith, art and place, this lecture asks about the politics, ethics and aesthetics of bearing impossible witness to the outside of economies and architectures of time and place, belief and futurity, security and irrecoverable loss, in the midst of, and over ten years since, the events of 9/11. This talk is organized in conjunction with Deborah Harter's Mellon Seminar, "Frames of the Beautiful, the Criminal, and the Mad."
